Rescue or Destroy Art Tournament
There’s an exciting new game in town! It’s called “Rescue-or-Destroy Art Tournament.” And we’d like to invite you to join us.
The best way to describe Rescue-or-Destroy Art Tournament: It’s like a sports tournament for art - an “Art Tourney.” Eight pairs of artists compete, tournament style, in a bi-weekly event at Gallery Bar in River North. The events are spaced out over several months culminating in a high-profile event slated to run alongside Chicago Expo.
It works like this…
Sixteen artists are selected to participate and are paired up to create eight initial duos. Each artist brings a piece of art (their choice) for the event and the audience is called on to “rescue,” or “destroy” (hack up into a million pieces) one of the two pieces presented on stage.
Rescue or Destroy is a proven concept with successful events at Art Basel Miami, Art Chicago, Zhou B Art Center, Built Art Festival and street art performances at MCA.
Rescue or Destroy kicks off at 8pm on Saturday February 22nd at Gallery Bar – 738 N. Clark St., Chicago. Thereafter events will occur on First Thursdays and Third Saturdays of every month culminating in a grand finale during Art Expo Chicago.
We have two slots left open if you are interested in competing please send me a message
